The eyes are the most prominent part of the face and help enhance your look to a certain extent. The eye consists of many different parts some of which are visible to the people around you while others are hidden from view. The visible portion generally includes the iris, the pupil, the sclera, etc. The sclera is the part that forms the white portion of the eye. Although this area is white colored in most people, it may be a little discolored as well. This discoloration can occur due to a variety of reasons ranging from hereditary to lifestyle factors.
People who are exposed to high pollution levels or other chemical substances generally find the white color of their sclera being replaced by a dirty yellow or seeped with tinges or red. This can give an unhealthy look to the face and can take away the freshness and youthfulness of a face. Thus, eye whitening is being preferred by a number of people who suffer from this problem. Sometimes, the discoloration may not be caused due to direct exposure to smoke and dust but due to internal health problems. In cases where there are liver or kidney related problems, the eyes may start to show signs by becoming yellowish or reddish. In such cases, the only way to correct the eyes is by obtaining treatment for these organ related problems.
In cases where the discoloration is caused due to environmental factors, there are many different ways in which one can whiten the eyes. Adequate moisturizing of the eye can help in eye whitening. This can be done by purchasing over the counter moisturizing eye drops from a chemist. Sometimes, the eyes may start to lose their natural color due to deficiency of essential nutrients. In this case, the eyes can be whitened gradually is by making positive improvements to the diet. You should include food items like carrots, spinach, etc. that are said to be good for the eyes. Thus there are many treatments available for eye whitening that should be chosen depending on the causes of the problem.
